Raising a Secession pole in Petersburg--
destructive fire.

Petersburg, Dec. 23.
--A Secession pole, 100 feet high, with a Palmetto flag, was hoisted in one of the most prominent streets in this city yesterday morning, amid vociferous cheers from a large crowd. The pole was sawed down this morning just before dawn of day by some unknown party, and the flag carried off. Great excitement prevails, and a collision is feared.

Dunlop & Crawford's tobacco factory, and several buildings adjoining, were destroyed by fire this afternoon. Loss $30,000; partially insured.
